Waiting On Wednesday (65)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

You by Charles Benoit.

A note from the author:
It's easy to forget that we spend our early teens afraid. We're afraid of fitting in, standing out, or being ignored. We worry that we'll never get a date, never get into college, and never amount to anything. Just like everyone predicts.

It's also easy to discount these fears. Looking back, it seems impossible that we would have stayed awake all night worrying about what someone else thought of our clothes or that we ever doubted our abilities, our potential. But that's only because we know how the story ends.

I wanted to write a book that started with these fears as givens, bottling them in tight and capping them off with that artificial indifference genetically required of all teens. Kyle Chase is not a bad kid. He's not a good kid, either. He's a typical kid. He's any kid. And, at one point in your life, he was you.

This book sounds really promising, like something you can relate to, something typical with a touch of refreshment. It has been a while since I've read anything in a guy's perspective so that just doubles my excitement for you.

Is Kyle really you? Find out on September 1st 2010
